Summer time Style tips

Things I'm loving (in no particular order, of course!)

-- chambray button down shirts for both men and women. Opt for a more tailored fit and a bright colour for that perfect summer style that's classic and casual.

-- medallion style necklaces. From the militaristic dog tags from Dolce & Gabbana to the fabulous Marrakesh pendant from Paloma Picasso's 30th anniversary collection for Tiffany & Co. When it comes to jewelry, make a statement, be playful, be meaningful. Accessorize your life with
pizazz and panache.

-- "khaki" is a Hindi word for "dust" - so khaki off your summer suits and up the ante with a brilliant khaki suit. I'm loving Brooks Brothers' premium Supima blended cotton khaki suits featuring fabric that breathes and provides amazing durability while remaining soft and
elegant. (US$ 598.

-- swim trunks that fit. Not the overly baggy, created from too much fabric and not enough thought, but not the nut-hugging, super-spandex, doubles-as-bike-shorts variety usually reserved for Olympic swimmers either. I mean the kind that falls to a happy medium betwixt the mid thigh and knee, with a slim profile, non-metallic and quick drying fabric, and an elastic-free, snap and Velcro front closure. I suggest J. Crew, SunDek, Park & Ronen. My friends at GQ also love Orlebar Brown's bulldog trunk.

-- I'm still loving the look of wearing multiple bracelets. for both men and women, with a mixture of textures, styles, materials, and price.
